Okay, Nashies — Christmas has come early with the announcement by CMT that they'll give us a sneak peek of “Nashville." That's right; you can watch the first hour of its Season 5 premiere on Thursday, Dec. 15, with the full two-hour episode debuting on Thursday, Jan. 5 at 9 p.m. 

What can you expect from the premiere? Rayna (Connie Britton) and Deacon (Charles Eston) are adjusting to life with Maddie (Lennon Stella) back home, while Highway 65, Rayna’s label, is not doing well financially. The show also reacts to the news of Juliette’s (Hayden Panettiere) plane gone missing.

You can watch the trailer below.
